Throughout the Old Testament is written prophecies of the coming Messiah. Isaiah mentions the coming Christ several times. David also does in Psalms. Psalm 22 is the most incredible of all predictions, which I will get to later. Predictions of how He would live, die, and what purpose He will serve are written throughout the OT. Isaiah 7:14-16, Isaiah 9:6-7, Isaiah 11:1-5, Isaiah 53:1-12, Psalm 110:1 are particularly enlightening, which Isaiah 53 shows the Christ must suffer and die while staying silent. Psalm 22 predicts the manner of His death vividly. When you are willing (we are all able unless we have mental handicaps), you can do some simple research to strengthen your faith.

Many wonder who killed Jesus. Was it the Jews? Some Jews? Those who say they are Jews, but are not? The Romans? Here’s my answer and God’s answer to that question. We all did. Jesus died for our sins, right? So we killed Him. Jesus did say that scribes, elders, and Pharisees would deliver Him to the Gentiles to kill Him, but His death served an incredible purpose.

Starting from the gospel in Matthew is the listing of all generations from King David to Yeshua or Y’shua (”Jesus” in the Hebrew). Jesus is actually the Greek version of the Jewish name “Joshua” and is pronounced Yeshua. In Genesis they list the generations from Adam to Seth (since Abel was murdered and Cain was not of the line of Adam), on and on to Noah, then again on and on to King David. Notice they were all Jews from that lineage.

When the time was right for Jesus, He wandered through the desert for forty days while fasting to be tempted by Satan. This is significant because it shows Satan knew what Jesus was able to do. He knew Jesus had the ability to sin, even though He never did. Satan did his best to make Him fail because if Jesus did sin, this creation would be in a lot of trouble right now. God might have had to erase this whole age and start again at best. For those who don’t believe Jesus had the ability to sin, ask yourselves why Satan would waste his breath trying to make Jesus fail? Satan knew exactly who Jesus was. How many of you did Satan offer all the kingdoms of the world to? I will go on a limb and say none. Satan wanted Jesus to fail to push off his death sentence longer and show God that our creation wasn’t worth His trouble. Maybe Satan was hoping God would then take pity on Satan and forgive him. Remember Jesus’ parable of the vineyard where the owner sent his slaves to receive the fruits from the laborers, but they abused some and even killed some. These slaves were the prophets. Then the vineyard owner sent his son, saying “they will respect my son”, but the laborers knew who the son was and wanted to claim his inheritance by killing him. The son was Jesus and the owner of the vineyard was God. Notice the evil laborers wanted the inheritance? What was the inheritance?

Maybe the most significant temptation from Satan was when he put Jesus on the pinnacle of the temple and said “For it is written, ‘He shall give His angels charge concerning You, and in their hands tney shall bear You up for fear at anytime You hit Your foot against a stone.'” Satan knew if he could make His death so painful and humiliating, perhaps Jesus would call on the angels to save Him because He couldn’t take anymore. This should reveal how horrific Christ’s death really was in every way. Imagine going through what He did and having the ability with one word get out of it. What an incredible price He paid. Despite Jesus’ words on the cross, God did not forsake Him, nor did He accuse God of doing so.

Jesus in order to die for our sins would have to live His life sinlessly. He had to be a pristine lamb to the slaughter. During His life, He echoed God’s laws and took on the traditions of men. There was no one to confound Him or break His stride. While people were looking at Him as the Messiah to end the Roman rule and bring about the promises given by God, many forgot that it was written of Him that He would die before setting up God’s kingdom on Earth. In Isaiah 53:7 it says that He was to be lead like a lamb to the slaughter and will take His death silently. Onto the tenth verse, it says it pleased the Lord to bruise Him. The reason why God was pleased when Jesus did die was that He was achieving His purpose. He was dying for the sins of this creation.

Getting to Psalm 22, it is designed to do something most incredibly wise. It is supposed to make our creation ask a question and find the answer when Jesus quotes it. Jesus says on the cross “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?” It is supposed to make us ask “why wasn’t that a sin?” I’ve heard many explanations from traditional teachers and learners alike which amount to the babblings beyond Babylon. I’ve heard that in that moment Jesus sinned to become our sin. I’ve heard that it was Jesus’ moment of doubt and pain. Jesus NEVER sinned. To accuse God of forsaking Him would be a sin, but there is a reason why that isn’t a sin. The reason is Psalm 22. Psalm 22 starts off by simply saying “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?” Even when pointing this out to some, they will not come off their prior doctrine. Verse sixteen says that He will have His hands and feet pierced. In the new translations (at least one of them anyway), the word “pierced” is replaced by “bound”. The Hebrew word there is aw-ree, which indeed means “pierced”. That whole psalm was written about how Jesus would die 1000BC. That was probably at least part of the reason He knew He was going to be crucified. Jesus wasn’t speaking to God when He was on the cross. He was quoting scripture. He was telling our creation, who are willing to get past traditional, flawed teaching that Psalm 22 was about Him. That He indeed was the Messiah. Knowing this, what can an atheist say against this? Read Psalm 22. There’s not a more poignant psalm in all of the Bible.

Jesus defeated death for us after we brought death onto ourselves. Through Him we can find life everlasting. While not everybody is here to make a choice (some have particular jobs to do), those who need to make a choice will have to make it either in this age or the next one. The next age I will write about in a later post, but there indeed will be another age after this one. How can Jesus reign on Earth with His saints while Satan is imprisoned in the bottomless pit if His return ends the world? There’s a mistranslation there in Matthew 24:3 with the word “world”. It actually was the Greek word for “age”.

Jesus shared His messages with the world and lived without sin and hypocrisy. He rebuked sinners but tried to call them to righteousness. He warned our creation of the time to come and what would happen to us if we failed our Lord. He did not come to destroy the Law or the prophets, but to fulfill. He was simply saying it was time to forgive the sinner, but the Law and the words of God through His servants, the prophets still stands. Jesus even said that it’s easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one letter of the Law to be changed, so anyone saying that Jesus wasn’t as harsh as God was in the OT has it wrong. He just had a different job to do. Jesus fulfilled the need for the severe punishments to give for laws we seemingly break on a daily basis. God could relax knowing that He through His laws and punishments pushed Satan’s corruption of this creation off long enough for Jesus to be born and to die without sin to seal victory to those of us who want it. It was Satan who beguiled Eve and his purpose was to bring sin and death before it’s due time to wholly corrupt our creation and this age. This was the purpose of those harsh punishments for the laws. It’s pretty clear when you read Deuteronomy. Jesus opened the kingdom of heaven and went into the pits of the Earth to bring the righteous from their former resting place to something new. Jesus sealed up victory for the righteous and Satan’s failure by staying silent and taking His cruel, humiliating death. Praise Him and the One who sent Him!



  1. Francis says:

    ‘jesus’ is the transliteration of the pagan catholic latin ‘iesus’ not the pagan greek ‘iesous’…….

    So who is the ‘catholic/christian’ ‘jesus’?

    Truth is that the name ‘jesus’ is the transliteration of a name into english from the latin ‘Iesus”, latin being the language of pagan catholicism! And so it is that all biblical translations from pagan greek manuscripts are prejudiced according to the will of christianity’s latin mother, she who calls herself catholicism.

    Consider, those ‘bibles’ translated from the pagan greek manuscripts. Why is it that most all of those ‘bibles’ transliterate The Name of The Messiah as “jesus”?

    That question needs be asked because as stated previously the name “jesus” is the transliteration of The Messiah’s GOD given birth Name from the latin language “Iesus”, not the greek “Iesous”! The correct and proper transliteration of The Messiah’s GOD given birth Name from the pagan greek manuscripts would be “Jesous” in modern day english.

    So who, or what, gave the translators the liberty, or the authority, to change the greek “scriptures” as they did when they used the pagan latin, rather than the pagan greek transliteration of The Messiah’s GOD given birth Name?

    Truth IS the name ‘jesus’ was first “imag”ined some six hundred years past! Truth IS there was no ‘j’ sound in the english language prior to that time! Truth IS the name ‘jesus’ was not spoken for some 1400 years after The Messiah ascended unto HIS HIS GOD and Father!

    And The Messiah’s GOD is The GOD of His Brethren and The Messiah’s Father is The Father of His Brethren. The Messiah, “ascended to His GOD” and was the “first-born of many Brethren”, The Messiah was “The Beginning of The Creation of The Only True GOD”.

    The Messiah(‘christ’) is “the mediator between The Only True GOD and man”.

    The Messiah’s GOD given Hebrew birth Name when translated into today’s english would be J’shua for the greek word “Iesous” used for the Name of The Messiah is the same greek word used in the greek translation of The Old Covenant for “J’shua”, the son of Nun.

    Should not The Son of The Only True GOD be called by The Name given to Him by His Father and GOD?

    Yet His exalted title is The Messiah, The Son of The Living GOD, for as there is only One True GOD, so also there is only One True Messiah, Y’shua (J’shua in modern day english)The Son of GOD!

    And The Messiah testified, “I ascend to My GOD and your GOD, to My Father and your Father”!

    Truth also testifies that the name ‘jesus’ was “imag”ined during a time ‘the god of this world'(he who is “the father of lies”) and his ‘christianity’ declared to be the ‘reformation’. Prior to the ‘reformation’ there was no ‘j’ sound in the english language and there never has been a ‘j’ sound or letter in the greek or Hebrew language!

    Indeed ‘catholicism’ was reformed, in the sense of being restructured and made to appear differently outwardly. The various ‘re-formed’ systems of religion were, and are, her offspring! And they all bear the ‘mark’ of their ‘god’ ‘jesus’! Either they name one head of their three headed pagan ‘god’ ‘jesus’ or they make the one they call ‘jesus’ their ‘god’, or declare their ‘jesus’ to be but an angel or prophet.

    All of pagan ‘catholicism’s’ so-called ‘christian’ daughters are but harlot systems of religion fornicating with ‘ the god of this world’, he who is “the father of lies”.

    They fornicate with “the god of this world” because “they love his world, it’s things”, and “their own lives in and of his evil, wicked world!”

    The Messiah testified of an “evil world” and He ascended to His GOD and Father!

    And The Messiah’s GOD and Father is also The GOD and Father of The Messiah’s Brethren, HE WHO IS The ONLY TRUE GOD”, HE WHO Has No ‘god’ nor ‘father’, for HE IS “The One GOD, Father of ALL”!

    “Truth” Tesifies:
    “The Messiah is The Son of The Living GOD”!
    catholic/christian” folklore:
    ‘jesus’ is ‘god’ or 1/3 of a ‘god’ or an angel or ????

    “Truth” Tesifies:
    “Love your enemies! Turn the other cheek”!
    “catholic/christian” folklore:
    fight and war in the flesh! kill your enemies.

    “Truth” Tesifies:
    “The world is evil”! Come out of her, MY people”!
    catholic/christian” folklore:
    we can change this world and make it ‘better’.

    “Truth” Tesifies:
    “The WHOLE world lies in wickedness”!
    catholic/christian” folklore:
    there are righteous nations, the usa and others.

    “Truth” Tesifies:
    “Love not the world or the things of this world”!
    “catholic/christian” folklore:
    love this world and thank ‘god’ for it’s things.

    “Truth” Tesifies:
    “Pagans observe days, months and years”!
    “catholic/christian” folklore:
    christmas, easter, halloween, ‘good’ friday, etc.

    “Truth” Tesifies:
    “Serve The Only True GOD and HIM alone”!
    “catholic/christian” folklore:
    serve family, country and their “imag”ined ‘god’.

    “Truth” Tesifies:
    GOD asks, “What building will you build unto ME”?
    “catholic/christian” folklore:
    various buildings dedicated to their “imag”ined ‘god’.

    “Truth” Tesifies:
    “As The Messiah suffered so His Brethren will suffer”!”
    catholic/christian” folklore:
    eat, drink, be merry, especially during x-mass season.

    “Truth” Tesifies:
    “GOD helps those who cry unto HIM for help”!
    “catholic/christian” folklore:
    ‘god’ helps those who help themselves.

    “Truth” Tesifies:
    “NO man has seen The Only True GOD”!
    “catholic/christian” folklore:
    many saw their “imag”ined ‘god’ ‘jesus’.

    “Truth” Tesifies:
    “GOD is Spirit and a Spirit has not flesh and bones”!
    “catholic/christian” folklore:
    except for their “imag”ined ‘god’ ‘jesus’ that is.

    “Truth” Tesifies:
    “When you pray do so in private”!
    “catholic/christian” folklore:
    pray aloud so that others might hear.

    “Truth” Tesifies:
    “Swear not! Let your yes, be yes, your no, no”!
    “catholic/christian” folklore:
    put your hand on their ‘bible’ and swear to their ‘god’.

    The Messiah testified, “That they might know YOU,
    The ONLY TRUE GOD, and The Messiah, Whom
    YOU have sent”!

    The Messiah testified, “Love Your Enemies”!

    islam, judaism, catholicism, christianity,,, etc.

    Religious systems of this world and all alike they are,
    for they have fought and killed both near and far;

    And then once a week or multiples times a day they pray,
    yet as hypocrites they begin each new day;

    Days that are filled with deceit and lies,
    for in their religious systems Truth cannot abide;

    And so the fruit of death is born of their religious ways,
    for life is but a pawn in the wicked game they play!

    “Pure religion and undefiled before G-D The Father is this, to visit the fatherless (those children who know not The Only True G-D, Father(Creator) of ALL) and widows(those who have not “experienced The Messiah and The Power{Our Father} that raised Him from among the dead”) in their affliction and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the world…….” (James 1:27)

    Simply, all other religion is impure and defiled…….

    And notice that “pure and undefiled” religion is for the individual, a Brother or Sister doing The Will of Our Father, led of The Holy, Set Apart, Spirit…….

    And “Brothers and Sisters” is not “religion”, for what are Brothers and Sisters if not Family? Would not The Family of The Only True G-D, Father(Creator) of ALL, “The Body of The Messiah”, be much closer than a natural, fleshly family?

    What is declared to be “religion” today is truly the devil’s playground…….

    Multitudes have been seduced by ” the commandments and doctrines of men”, the devil’s theo’ry’logical advocates!

    And theo’ry’logy has bound the common people in the chains of “strong delusion”.

    The Only True GOD has given HIS Call to “Come out of her, MY people”, unto all who are held captive by this wicked, evil world and it’s seductive religious systems, and especially the ones called “catholicism” and “christianity”. Because of them, “The Way of Truth is evil spoken of” ;-( (2 Peter 2:2)

    “The mother of harlots”, “catholicism”, and her “protesting” “christian” daughters, as well as today’s “judaism” and “islam”, are but seductive harlots fornicating with ‘the god of this world’!

    They believe in, and are authors of, death!

    The Messiah testified, “Whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die!”

    And then He qestioned, “Do you believe this?” YES!

    And you? Do you believe?

    The Only True GOD would have us “set our affections on things above”.

    For HIS Children desire that which is eternal, and have quit serving ‘time’ in the prison that is this wicked world.

    And HIS Children have heeded The Call to repent and:

    “Come out of her, MY people!”

    They have “Come out” of this wicked, evil world and it’s systems of religion for they realize that “the WHOLE(not just a portion) world is under the control of the evil one”. (I John 5:19)

    Sadly, a wicked, worldly “christianity” and “catholicism” are reasons why “The Way of Truth is evil spoken of”! (2 Peter 2:2)

    Yet there is Hope!

    For Miracles do happen!

    Hope is there would be those who “set their affections on things above”, Heavenly things, for all who do so will quit serving ‘time’ in the prison that is this world!

    Worldly systems but feed “the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life” and such systems are of mankind’s “imag”ination, and mankind’s “imag”ination is under the dominion of “the father of lies”, he who is “the god of this world”, he who is “d”evil spirit of darkness that genders but death, destruction, perversion, fear, confusion, greed, lust,,,,, “every evil work”!

    Sadly, mankind’s “imag”ination is destroying the earth(land, air, water, vegetation, creatures) and perverting that which is Spirit(Light, Truth, Life, Love, Peace, Mercy, Faith, Grace, Hope,,,,,,, etc.).

    Please take heed unto The Only True GOD’s Call and “Come out of her, MY people”!

    Come out of the perverse, destructive, evil world and it’s sytems of religion!

    Once again, “Pure religion and undefiled before GOD The Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the world.” (James 1:27)

    Simply, all other religion is impure and defiled! So heed The Call and “Come Out”!

    Experience Peace in Truth, in spite of the dis-ease(no-peace) that is of this wicked world and it’s systems of religion, for “the WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one” indeed and Truth……. francis

  2. Jesse Norman II says:

    The NT was originally written in Greek, so the name Jesus didn’t go from Hebrew to Latin to Greek. The only difference between the pronunciations of the Latin and Greek is the “h” sound and the “y” sound. As you pointed out, Y’shua is His name in the actual Hebrew, and the English version of that is Joshua, which means God saved.

  3. Francis says:

    Sadly it seems you are yet held captive by the pagan catholic/christian systems of religion ;-(

    The oldest complete pagan greek manuscipt of the New Testament is said to have been transcibed in the mid fourth century.

    “Tertullian stated that by 150 A.D., the Church in Rome had compiled a list of the New Testament books matching our list of today.”

    So what of the manuscripts between the second to mid fourth century?

    Many have suggested that the New Testament was originally written in Hebrew and i support that suggestion for it is quite clear that the pagan roman catholic church had complete control over most all documents/manuscripts from the time Tertullian wrote until the end of what is called ‘the dark ages’…….

    And ‘jesus’ was not transliterated from the Hebrew to the pagan latin to the pagan greek…….period…….

    First, the pagan greeks do not transliterate names from another languages, they simply create a new greek name and such was the case with ‘iesous’. They first gave that name ‘iesous’ to Y’shua who led the jews to “the promised land” in the old covemant and could be that because The Messiah leads His followers to the “Heavenly promised land” they chose to use the very same name. That caused much confusion in king james’s version of the
    ‘bible’ for the old testament Joshua was translated as ‘jesus’ a few times in his New Testament ;-(

    And it is quite clear that the name of “iesus” has no Hebrew root for it was first used in the pagan catholic “latin vulgate” which was translated from the pagan greek New Testament. They transliterated the pagan greek ‘iesous’ as ‘iesus’ ;-(

    Sad because the multitudes don’t realize that their favorite name of ‘jesus’ is from the pagan latin catholic mother of christianity ;-(

    Sadder yet when you consider that most all New Testament translators take the liberty of changing the pagan greek manuscript when they transliterate the pagan greek ‘iesous’ as ‘jesus’ ;-(

    And YES! Truth always makes a difference…….

    Especially for those who have received “the love of The Truth”…….

  4. Jesse Norman II says:

    Then explain the NT versions of Isaiah to Esias and Elijah to Elias. I do believe both Esias and Elias are Greek and only Elias can possibly be pointed out as Latin. The Latin version of Isaiah is Isais, but Isais isn’t written anywhere. Consider your logic shot down. Pretty sad, huh?

  5. Francis says:

    Yes, your response was “pretty sad” indeed!

    Simply, sad for you ;-(

    Didn’t know you were an arab.

    Wbat does the peshitta aramaic version of the New Testament have to do with ‘jesus’ being the transliteration of the pagan latin catholic ‘iesus’?

    Makes no difference how many greek and latin words were used in the transliteration of New Testament names…….

    Truth remains that ‘jesus’ is the transliteration of the pagan latin catholic ‘iesus’ not the pagan greek ‘iesous’.

    As for logic?

    Truth & Faith rejoice against logic, especially theo’ry’logy ;-(

  6. Jesse Norman II says:

    “Makes no difference how many greek and latin words were used in the transliteration of New Testament names…….” Well gee, the previous bloviated comment you made you sure thought it was a big thing. Greeks don’t transliterate names. That’s what you said, right? “First, the pagan greeks do not transliterate names from another languages”. So how do you go from that to this? Oh wait, because I asked a question you can’t answer. Instead of admitting you can’t answer with all of your “knowledge”, you keep acting like I (and you probably do this with everyone else willing to placate your drivel) know nothing compared to what you know. How did I stump you if you know so much? Explain Esias being the GREEK version of Isaiah while the Latin version is Isais because you went nowhere near it. I don’t recall ever reading the word “Isais” anywhere in the NT. According to my Strong’s, it’s not there either. While the KJV did come from Latin, the OT was originally written in Hebrew and the NT was originally written in Greek. The Strong’s bypasses the KJV and the Latin Vulgate. The Latin means absolutely nothing because the Vulgate is a translation. This is common knowledge. That simply is missed by everything you said. You know what, don’t even bother answering my question. I know what I’m going to get. More nonsense about “pagan this” and “pagan that”. “Sad nobody knows as much as me.” It’s best you just move on. Any further comment you have won’t be posted. Condescend somewhere else. I do find it weird how you muster up the ability to condescend while being so conclusively wrong. I mean anyone can do a word search and find out that the NT was originally written in Greek. That’s amazing that somewhere in your head you felt you were safe enough in your knowledge to condescend to someone who has an easy fact on his side. Go away. I will placate your nonsense no more.
